Executive Orders

Executive Orders

Our nation was not founded to be a centrally planned socially straight-jacketed empire ruled by the decrees of a sovereign. With President Obama, seconded and supported by his Attorney General Holder, deciding not to enforce laws they disagree with, the rule of law has ended in the United States. We can date our passage from a nation of laws to a nation of men not with this momentous decision but more effectively from the moment our elected representatives declined to declare this action to be unconstitutional and illegal.

The Free Speech Kill Switch

The Free Speech Kill Switch

Proposed federal legislation purporting to protect online intellectual property would also impose sweeping new government mandates on internet service providers — a positively Orwellian power grab that would permit the U.S. Justice Department to shut down any internet site it doesn’t like (and cut off its sources of income) on nothing more than a whim.

Ice Cream in Hypocritical Flavors

Ice Cream in Hypocritical Flavors

Why do we never see questions like these being asked on ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, CNN, MSNBC, NPR, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the LA Times, Newsweek, Time, US News & World Report, et al? But hats-off to Daily Caller for asking relevant and important questions that expose the utter hypocrisy of the Left. Come learn about some really hypocritical ice cream.

Gingrich and Romney: Neither Support Limited Government

Gingrich and Romney: Neither Support Limited Government

If you thought 2012 would bring change to government, think of it more as rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The two leading candidates at the moment on the right are not champions of limited government. Sadly, it appears that those who consistently support limited government rarely seek high office.

Social Justice is Un-American, Un-Biblical

Social Justice is Un-American, Un-Biblical

There is a tremendous amount of controversy in our country today about “social justice.” This terms sounds like something that everyone should support, but it is in fact nothing but a socialist agenda. America was founded on the Biblical principle of equality before the law. “Social justice,” which is a Marxist concept, relies on the principle of equality of outcome. These two philosophies are at odds with one another, and produce very different results.

SD Update on the Federal Health Care Lawsuit

SD Update on the Federal Health Care Lawsuit

South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley releases further details on the U.S. Supreme Court’s oral argument in the Federal Health Care Reform Act case. The Court has allotted five-and-a-half hours for oral arguments expected to be heard by this February or March, with a decision potentially by late June 2012.

Fannie, Freddie Blow Half a Million Dollars

Fannie, Freddie Blow Half a Million Dollars

Actually, it was more than half a million dollars: more like $640k. Being government creations and creatures, your Fannie and Freddie companies spent $640,000 sending 100 employees to a conference and hosting events there. Aren’t you confident the federal government can get spending under control?

Comrade Sam: Eat Your Broccoli or Else

Comrade Sam: Eat Your Broccoli or Else

Not only do we have to eat our peas, but we might have to eat our broccoli as well. The Obama Administration reached a tyrannical high recently when, during oral arguments before the District of Columbia Court of Appeals on the constitutionality of Obamacare’s health-insurance mandate, their lawyer, Beth Brinkmann, made the claim that a law requiring Americans to eat broccoli could be constitutional.

Fast, Furious and Lawless Obama Regime

Fast, Furious and Lawless Obama Regime

At this point in time, anyone who does not understand that America has been taken over by a lawless, communist regime is woefully out of touch with the glaring reality of our situation. How anyone could not see the devilish behavior of Barack Obama and his Marxist buddies in Congress and his administration is hard to fathom, except when we consider that there really are extremely stupid and deluded people in the world. In 2012, vote as if your country is at stake–because it is.

We Can Trust Us

We Can Trust Us

No matter what the polls say I believe that the American people still believe in freedom. Don’t be discouraged by the blather of the pontificating politicians or confused by the conflicting ruminations of the professional talkers. When all is said and done we can trust us. We the people will eventually come down on the side of truth, justice, and the American way.

Judiciary Myth – Courts Should Favor Minorities

Judiciary Myth - Courts Should Favor Minorities

You hear this one sometimes from socialists: the job of the judiciary is to protect the minority from the majority. No it isn’t. Lawbreakers are in the minority; is it the job of the judiciary to protect the minority of lawbreakers from the majority of law-abiding citizens? No, it is the job of the judiciary to uphold the law–which, in this case, involves protecting the majority from the lawbreaking of the minority.

Considering the National Debt Relief Amendment

Considering the National Debt Relief Amendment

While a broad cross section of Americans continue to favor a balanced budget amendment (BBA), some believe the idea is too closely identified with the Republican Party, and is unlikely to pass anytime soon. But there may be another way to get spending under control. Unlike the BBA, the National Debt Relief Amendment (NRDA) does not have a “get of jail free card,” that the political class can use to sidestep anti-spending restraints.

Judiciary Myth – Only Judges Can Interpret the Constitution

Judiciary Myth - Only Judges Can Interpret the Constitution

In the ongoing examination of judicial myths Rick Green of Wallbuilders Live, Rick looks at the myth that only judges are capable of interpreting the U.S. Constitution. Have you ever heard a liberal say about a controversial (and probably unconstitutional) piece of legislation: “Well, when the Supreme Court rules on it, then we’ll know if it’s constitutional or not.” Bull!

Judiciary Myth – Lifetime Appointment

Judiciary Myth - Lifetime Appointment

In a previous article I pointed out that the American people have, to the detriment of our freedom, bought into the lie that the judiciary is a “co-equal branch” of our government, when the founder’s statements and the Constitution itself make it clear that it was to be the weakest of the three branches. Another is that judges have a lifetime appointment, and there’s nothing that can be done about it. But we can do something about it. We can insist that judges who trample our freedom and show contempt for the U.S. Constitution be impeached and removed from office. It’s time we exercised that option.

Judiciary Myth – Coequal Branch

Judiciary Myth - Coequal Branch

It’s no secret that the courts have been running roughshod over our freedoms for decades. They’ve been encouraged to do so. And through our ignorance, we the people have allowed the courts to trample our liberties. We have allowed the Supreme Court to become a virtual oligarchy that forces its 9-pronged will on the executive branch, the legislative branch, and on the American people. Isn’t it time we learned the truth, dispelled the myths, and took our freedom back?

Tea Party Proposes Only Serious Fiscal Plan

Tea Party Proposes Only Serious Fiscal Plan

Now this is the kind of cuts we need to get America back on track fiscally! We’re currently $15 TRILLION in debt. We have an annual deficit of about $1.5 TRILLION, so do the math: in 10 years, unless the economy comes back strong, we’ll have accrued another $15 trillion in debt.This means that cuts of anything less than about $10 trillion over 10 years are a drop in the bucket, a complete waste of everyone’s time. And the “supercommittee” is wringing it’s hands over cutting $1.2 trillion over 10 years? What planet are they on???

We’re ignoring the Constitution

We're ignoring the Constitution

As ObamaCare heads toward the Supreme Court, is it not sad that most basic violations of individual liberty are not intuitively obvious to so many citizens and members of Congress? It’s obvious what’s wrong today. We’ve either forgotten what being American means, or we no longer care.

Occupationist Professor: Govt Should Seize All Housing

Occupationist Professor: Govt Should Seize All Housing

You really have to love these Marxist occupationists. To heck with the U.S. Constitution. To heck with property rights. To heck with the Ten Commandments (“You shall not steal”). To heck with any sort of morality. To heck with any sort of freedom. Just have the government seize all housing and “redistribute” it.

MSNBC ‘Journalist’ Attacks Gun Rights Using Strawman

MSNBC 'Journalist' Attacks Gun Rights Using Strawman

You really have to ask yourself if MSNBC infobabe Alex Wagner in this video is for real. She shows contempt for the Second Amendment right of Americans to keep and bear arms, and when confronted with evidence of the counterproductive futility of gun control laws, she resorts to setting up strawmen and consulting foreigners.

Cancer-Causing Airport Scanners? Enough Is Enough

Cancer-Causing Airport Scanners? Enough Is Enough

Remember those whole-body, X-ray scanners the government installed in airports across the country and kept insisting were so safe? It turns out that they’re not so safe, after all. According to an investigative report by ProPublica/PBS NewsHour, anywhere from six to 100 U.S. airline passengers each year could get cancer from the machines.

One initiated measure is alive and the other one is dead

One initiated measure is alive and the other one is dead

In an August column I wrote what were to be two initiated measures to be voted on in South Dakota’s November 2012 General Election. Now, a week after the deadline, one of them will not see the inside of the ballot box. The dead one was whether or not we wanted to join the winner-take-all movement for electing U.S. presidents. The other was whether or not South Dakotans wanted to raise the sales tax by one penny.

Greedy Michael Moore Does Nothing for Needy

Greedy Michael Moore Does Nothing for Needy

A local Denver TV reporter asked Marxist hypocrite Michael Moore at an Occupy Denver event about his wealth, and when he did, Moore got very testy with him. This is a rare and commendable piece of real journalism on the part of reporter Evrod Cassimy. The “mainstream” media usually gives Leftists a pass on tough questions, especially when their hypocrisy and lies would be exposed by such questions. I hope Cassimy doesn’t get fired by his superiors.

Police State TSA is Trucking Right Along

Police State TSA is Trucking Right Along

The idea of “safety” or “security” is a powerful tool in the collection of emerging dictatorial governments that are not yet able or willing to use outright force to crush the entire population into compliance with the freedom-robbing desires of the rulers of the state. How many freedoms and liberties have we already willingly given up for “security’s” sake? Will we be able to stop and reverse the growth of the police state in America.

Star Parker on the Welfare State

Star Parker on the Welfare State

Reason TV did an interview of Star Parker, founder and president of the Center for Urban Renewal and Education (CURE). In the opening of the interview, she nails the socialist approach of the Left to the wall: “This whole notion that we should even have a ‘war on poverty’ dismisses the fact that individuals have a role in their own lives.”

The Constitution: Set Up to Prevent Theft of Power

The Constitution: Set Up to Prevent Theft of Power

Bill Whittle’s latest Afterburner provides an excellent lesson about the U.S. Constitution and the American way of life. Whittle also contrasts the vastly different ways in which the Left and the Right view the Constitution. While the Left sees it first as an obstacle to their glorious socialist revolution, and if they can’t get around it they’ll just “reinterpret” it to allow them to do what it clearly forbids. The Right sees the U.S. Constitution as, well, the highest law of our nation.
